'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of news that came out of his speech today. it's not as if we're not already at least assisting in the arming of the rebels. there was an intelligence finding by president obama that said we could give covert aid essentially through our allies, through the saudis and the qataris, but we have discouraged them from providing heavy weapons because we're afraid those heavy weapons might fall into the hands of terrorists. so that is the one difference that i th
, as president, would you have signed the national defense act as written? >> yes, i would have. >> dana, julian, this guy -- his memory is so good, he remembers things that didn't happen. >> right. >> well, look, this is actually a relatively controversial issue about whether merndz can be detained during a period of war indefinitely -- >> a position he agreed with previously and said he would sign the legislation. >> not only that, this is a position that's been debated intensely after 9/11. it's possible not to understand this issue or to have a position on it at this point. and it goes to the point, again, this is a guy who will, you know, say and do anything in order to get elected and really has no core. but again, i think that's a useful narrative. but i want to go back to the earlier point, which is there is so much meat on the table for the democrats right now f you go after the tax plan, the health plan, the fact that mitt is still hiding information on his taxes, i think what is missing here is not so much increasing the narrative on all of his -- this game of twister, where he can ta
